In Sidney Fine's description, "GM's factories, `long, squat, and seemingly all windows', were dispersed throughout Flint: Buick, which took up nine million square feet of floor space, in the north, Chevrolet and Fisher Body No. 2 in the west, Fisher Body No. 1, the largest plant of its kind in the world, in the south, and AC Sparkplug in the east. GM's 47,247 employees as of December, 1936, constituted more than two-thirds of all the gainfully employed in the city and more than one-quarter of the city's entire population. It was estimated that 80 percent of Flint's families were dependent on GM's payroll."
